" symon is an active minimalistic system monitor that can report cpu, memory, interface, disk and pf statistics to a gatherer somewhere on the network every 5 seconds. It can do all this without noticable impact on system performance -- I use it to measure my soekris, for example.This looks like a pretty neat way to keep a quick eye on several hosts easily, ie a server farm or a headless server. A test port is also on the site. Glad to see it's getting active development and feedback.
The package comes with a monitor (symon), a gatherer (symux) that can handle arbitrary numbers of symons and a web frontend (symon2web).
Although symon is ideal for profiling jobs, it might also fill some people's daily administration needs.
